Always had a good experience at this hotel. Always clean and accommodating. Staff very professional and helpful. They need to expand the area for breakfast; it's a little tight when many people are eating at the same time.

My wife and I came from Tulsa and I booked our room online using my Best Western rewards card. There are others here in Springfield however this Historic hotel is absolutely amazing from the decor and the design of the rooms. We got the Marilyn Monroe suite. Upon arrival of the hotel the first thing you notice is the classic... More

Very well kept and relaxing motel. Decor was excellent and reminded me of days gone by. Grounds were very well kept and rooms were clean. Appreciated being able to park my car in front of my room. Enjoyed my brief stay here.

My family of 4 stayed in a family suite. This included a second bedroom area with bunk beds for the kids. The room was spacious and quiet. The pool area was nice as was the continental breakfast. We choose this motel knowing it's an older property. I found this motel charming and full of character. We would definitely stay again!

The Route 66 Rail Haven Motel is a classic old time hotel from the early 60s. The rooms are always clean. The staff is always friendly. The continental breakfast is tasty.mits like going back in time to a sillier way of life.

This is a gem of place to stay. I have stayed here a number of times and it always takes me back to my younger boyhood and teenage days of travel across America during my father's military days of various travels during military transfers. Nostalgic experience in state of the art and modern facilities. This is how lodging should be... More

This motel lets you feel like you are travelling in the 50s or early 60s. The only thing they don't do is show you the room before booking. Remember those days when dad went with the owner to look at the room? I do remember some of those bygone era things. The place has been newly renovated and the rooms... More

This refurbished traditional motel, was a delightful surprise among an otherwise common selection of 'brand' hotels. From it's well groomed and amenity packed exterior, to the remodeled retro-feel interior, this facility deserves high marks - comfortable, clean, with a friendly, helpful staff, and pleasing to the senses in every respect. Now that we are aware of this wonderful motel, we... More

This was a traditional Route 66 hotel that has been modernized and is in excellent condition. Restaurant nearby and parking right outside your door. My only complaint was that the refrigerator in my room was very small and no freezer. I like to freeze my water bottles for the next day's trip.
